Coconut Cup #5 + ST – Dyer Park – WPB, Fl

Fantastic weather at the trail with the most elevation in South Florida for the fifth stop of the series. FORCE (Florida Off Road Cycling Enthusiasts) tends to the trails in this park and they always they do a super job prepping and supporting the event, many thanks to the crew! The club laid out a doosy of a loop which consisted of 6.75 mile of about half single track (in the low country) and the other half on the “Hill” which has lot’s of climbing and decending.

Saturday the series Short Track bonus was held which is split into the yellow and white wave. In the yellow wave there was some drama as a few of the lead racers made a sprint to the finish a lap early which made for an easy win for Bob McCarty who cruised by group and then laid down a fast lap to seal the deal. Matheus Macedo took the white wave win and Jennifer Moos was the women’s overall ST winner.

Sunday the course was set for prime conditions as an overnight rain created the perfect mix of traction and there was also some drama as Cat 1 racer Angel Rodriguez won the sprint to the finish and the overall in his debut to the class. Current state champ Simone Berger logged another win as well in the women’s Cat 1. The series resumes at Markham park on Feb 27th.
